Of course with Donald Trump as President, privilege is a topic that is rather relevant currently. For being a rich white man, Trump has ascended to take over the role that some consider to be "leader of the free world". But how privelleged are YOU? Do you feel that any facets of your identity that make you underprivileged, whether that's your sexuality, age, social class, religion, whatever? The above is a gauge to which facets of your identity might cause you to be underprivileged, although it is somewhat humorous laugh.gif

I am privileged with a score of 70 according to that site. I guess being female (and short apparently) would be the main thing to bring my score down.

Advantaged with a score of 35, tbf only the "poor" (30k is a high bracket to call someone poor tho no??) and "female" categories went against me (so to speak, not that there's anything wrong with the other categories ofc)

I think it's because it's US, it's about 16k for us so I'd say that's an ok bracket for "poor", if you look at the fact that you have to learn £21k to start paying back your student loan laugh.gif

I got disadvantaged from that too.

In reality, I really don't give much consideration as to whether I'm privileged or not. Everyone faces difficulties and new challenges in life and you shouldn't hold yourself back or feel ashamed of yourself because of or in spite of who you are. Obviously that's easier said than done and there's obviously some places in the world where this sort of freedom really isn't possible, but I do get this sense that some people almost revel in the idea of being disadvantaged or think that because someone is more privileged than another that their opinion or presence is suddenly less valuable.

Privilege level: Shitlord.

Score: 150

Tbf I do work in tech for an extremely large accounting firm and tick the white/tall/male box. Being under the Bi-umbrella means I pass as straight and while my family was a bit poor a decade or so ago we're a bit more on the divide between working class and middle class and there's no way that I personally am anything less than in the ABC1 social group with my job an income.

That having been said. I am woke to my privilege so try to ensure I check it wherever possible.

what's 'meh Europe' meant to mean anyway?

Anyway, I clearly have nothing I'm disadvantaged on and I have 165. I don't think it gave me enough options, especially on that 'kin' question, for me to fully express how disadvantaged I really am in life.

(not being serious guys, I do try and recognise how lucky I am in so many aspects whenever it's appropriate)

Is this quiz real or is it a joke? I honestly can't tell.

I feel like a priveliged person tho? Like I don't experience discrimination, but maybe that's because I live in an accepting place.

Is sexuality really enough to drag the score down that much?
